Baptist Health Lexington Lifeline provides a way for people living or staying alone to summon help quickly without having to get to the phone. Subscribers wear a lightweight, waterproof button on a necklace or wristband that can be pressed when help is needed. Monitors from a 24-hour center send help (family, neighbor with key or paramedics) and monitor the subscriber until help arrives.
This service can be adapted to assist anyone with any medical situation, including people who are deaf or hard of hearing, cannot speak, are visually impaired or lack the muscular strength needed to push the help button. Monitoring staff is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are highly trained to meet any need or situation.
Baptist Health Lexington Lifeline is available to anyone in Fayette, Bourbon, Jessamine, Madison, Nicholas, Scott or Woodford counties.
